Due to the cool weather and frosts during the spring flowering season, the apricot yield is expected to drop by 70-95% this year, depending on the region, according to the overview of the National Chamber of Agriculture, writes novekedes.hu.

Due to climate change, it is necessary to plant new, more resilient orchards in the long run, optimize the use of varieties, and modernize cultivation.

Extreme weather due to climate change has caused serious damage this year not only in Hungary but in all major apricot-growing countries in Europe, and similar spring frosts are to be expected in the coming years, the chamber warns.
